Temple rock


Cantor Yossele Rosenblatt “Sings Cantorial Favorites” Volume 4. I got this record at a record store in Chicago. It obviously came from the collection of an interesting guy and it was one of many lps that I found around the store that had these obsessive, crazy, beat, poetic, sometimes right-on and sometimes incongruous hand-written notes scrawled right on the cover. Here are a few of his descriptive song reviews: “Like baby this sauve, powerful, floating bag is a bitch”; “Straight ahead and so very, very pretty”; A fabulously hip rocker” and “Rough and stomping, baby”.

Below is a clipping from an old Village Voice that I had stuck in the cover. It’s an excerpt from a Harvey Pekar comic about cantorial music. Mazel Tov.

My Bubba & Zaeda’s   “Cha, Cha, Cha.”   Couldn’t they get Jews for the cover?
